This is a great chain hotel with many positive features,
Staff - were very friendly welcoming and very pleased to help in any way. Room check in was easy and everything was well explained.
Room - Very clean and modern with good decor and nicely finished. The facilities in the room were excellent including a big TV, spacious bathroom and shower and a large desk at which I could work.
Food - Evening meal was taken in my room and I went to collect it rather than pay the slightly expensive room charge for room service although this was not a hidden charge and you could, of course, chose not to pay it and either do what I did and collect or use the well appointed restaurant. Food was lovely and good value. Breakfast was a pleasant experience with cheerful and helpful staff and a very wide range of options.
Location - good for what I needed to do and easy to access for work. Central to Birmingham and close to all major road connections.
The only two downsides in my honest opinion were.
a) I stayed one night and had to pay £16.50 for car parking even with the 25% discount this seriously hikes up the cost of a room per night, the car park is close and has a connecting bridge but even so..ouch!
b) The lack of a free wifi connection seems to be symptomatic of the bigger chain hotels. All of the non chain smaller hotels I have stayed in ion recent times offer free wifi to guests but not here. This would be something I would have to consider when looking to book into a Birmingham hotel again.
Overall, a good stay, nice hotel, with good facilities, good food and nice staff.
